This is a classic French tragedy, previously brought to us on TV, radio and film. Now it's back on stage thanks to the Jamie Lloyd Company and the brilliant British actor James McAvoy, who have collaborated once more to create sheer theatre magic. This is the sorry tale of the soulful poet, philosopher and duellist Cyrano de Bergerac, who is madly in love with his cousin Roxane but so ashamed of his big nose that he can't bring himself to approach her and confess his feelings. Instead he writes love letters on behalf of the slow witted yet good looking Christian. Roxane falls madly in love with poetic letters' author, but she has no idea they were actually written by Cyrano. He keeps his secret even when tragedy strikes.
If you've always wanted to see James McAvoy live and in action, here's your chance. If you've always wanted to sample the brilliance of the Jamie Lloyd company, here you go. And if you've never been to the threatre, there are 15,000 free tickets on offer thanks to a partnership with British Airways, plus 15,000 more for just £15 each, specially created for the city's key workers, under 30s, and those on government benefits. Walk this way for a to class piece of theatre, a classic French play adored by millions. You're going to love it!
